This is a student’s notebook, which is to be used with How to Teach Any Child to Spell. It begins with a section of ‘Tricks, Tips, and Bits of Code” that gives the child a simple collection of rules for spelling. Students are directed to collect each word they misspell in the course of their own writing, then classify the words and write them in the proper list included in this booklet. With each misspelled word, students are asked to play detective to determine why they spelled the word incorrectly. The recorded words then become their weekly spelling list designed especially for their needs.
